Shore Erosion Control Meetings
Last October, we notified everyone of our intention to conduct a special Shore Erosion Control Plan meeting, but that was a while ago, so here's a reminder.
To showcase the master plan that the marine engineering firm of Andrews-Miller and Associates (AMA) has prepared, we're hosting a special general meeting from 7 to 9 p.m. on Monday, March 8, at the Hillsmere library.
Mr. Gary Williams of AMA, who is the principal architect of the plan, and Mr. Terry Cummings, a Chesapeake Bay Foundation employee and a recent AOTB neighbor, plan to be there to provide some professional input. During the first hour we'll discuss the plan then for the next hour we'll need to gather input, ideas, and -- most especially -- identify committed volunteers to help implement (read FUND) the plan. It won't work without a lot of help from a lot of people, and yes, that does mean YOU!

To properly prepare ourselves for this general meeting, we're inviting those of you with a will to make this happen to a special planning session a week before, on Monday, March 1, at my house (1375 Walnut), also from 7 to 9 p.m. At that time, we'll discuss funding options so we can present the general membership with our best thought-out alternatives. Please understand that, although ideas and suggestions can be useful, this will not work without YOUR committed support and active participation!
